She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor. Amber’s theoretical foundation is based on Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Family Systems assumes that all members in a family are connected and that nothing happens in a vacuum, what affects one member affects all members. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that helps people change how they think, feel or act in order to improve their mood, reduce stress, or achieve other important health and life goals. CBT aims at rapid improvement in feelings and moods, and early changes in any self-defeating behavior. Amber has worked with children, adolescents, and adults including couples, families, and group counseling in integrated behavioral health settings, public schools, and community-based services. She is currently seeking additional training as a Registered Play Therapist, as a Gottman Method Couples Therapist, and Certified Trauma & Grief Counselor. Play Therapy differs from regular play in that the therapist helps children systematically address and resolve their own problems. Play allows a safe psychological distance from problems and allows expression of true thoughts and feelings in ways best suited to their developmental levels.
With an extensive background as a trauma-informed clinician, and trained in Reality Therapy, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method for couples, among other treatment modalities, Justin’s specialty is facilitating recovery for youth and families impacted by inappropriate sexualized behaviors.
